Six drug traffickers intercepted, over 3 qls of cannabis resin seized in country's west, south

ALGIERS- Six drug traffickers were arrested Tuesday in Oran, Tlemcen, Biskra and Tipasa by units of the National Gendarmerie, said Wednesday the Ministry of National Defence in a statement.

"As part of the fight against smuggling and organized crime, units of the National Gendarmerie arrested on 31 January 2017 in Oran, Tlemcen, Biskra and Tipasa, six drug traffickers and seized 3 quintals and 71kg of cannabis resin, as well as 4 vehicles and 3,756 units of different beverages," said the statement.

In addition, units of the National Gendarmerie and the Border Guards "intercepted 20 illegal immigrants of different nationalities in Tlemcen, Naama and Bechar," while units of the Coastguards thwarted, in Oran (2nd Military Region) and Annaba (5th Military Region), "illegal immigration attempts of 30 people aboard makeshift boats," added the Ministry's statement.

A unit of the Coastguards, in coordination with a unit of the National Gendarmerie, rescued off Mostaganem (2nd Military Region) nine illegal immigrants after their boat capsized.
